Phillip Patterson is a sixty-three year old retiree from Philmont, New York who’s spent the past 7 years working on a handwritten volume of the entire  – almost 800,000 word King James Bible. Phillip suffers from AIDS and related illnesses, often making the quest slow-going, though he sometimes logged up to eighteen hours of writing a day. He just recently finished the epic manuscript.
